Green: Compost your Leaves!

Recycling your leaves by composting is the greenest way to both reduce waste and create useful fertilizer for you yard. It's natural, easy, and requires almost no maintenance and can be done in any number of ways. Plus, the leaves you compost can be used as mulch or as a valuable nutrient in your soil. For more information on composting, visit http://www.epa.gov/composting.
